This word has been gnawing at me for a few months since I tried to post it and it mysteriously vanished, followed by mental fatigue to draw upon it again. So let's now try this again and breakthrough it's resistance.
I heard the Lord calling His Bride to redress in these ways:
My wise Bride. I need My Bride to clothe herself in wisdom at this time. Not the wisdom of man, or of this world, but wisdom that can come only by My Spirit. Now is the time to ask of Me, as Solomon did, for wisdom and knowledge "so that you may rule and administer justice to My people" 2 Chronicles 1:11. The Lord found Solomons heart to be true, that he "did not ask for riches, possessions or honour and personal glory, or the life of those who hate you, nor have you even asked for long life", but rather a desire to lead those he was entrusted with well and justly. If ever there is a time we require increased Godly wisdom it is now, in the shift of a new era, one very different from what we have ever experienced before. The fact this verse is 1:11 didn't escape me either. Like many of us having the repetitious 1's stalking us as a sign of transition for so long, we require the wisdom and knowledge of God to best help transition the people of God, and nations. Will we value that wisdom far above our need of honour, possessions, fleshly battles and longevity of life?
My wholehearted Bride. I ask for your hand in the full covenant of marriage with Me again. Where your hands have held too tightly to my blessings that they have become the idols of your heart. Will you let go, hands and heart, and take My hands with such firmness that refuses to let go as if your life depends on it, for it does? I may ask of you to lay down the very things I originally called and blessed you to and for where they have become the preoccupation of your hands and heart in order to realign you fully to Me, heart to heart, hand to hand. I care too deeply about our commitment to one another than to allow it to spoil. But Lord, you say, you gave theses good things, why would you ask me to lay them down? If I ask you to lay them down, it is only so that you are not at servant to nor ruled by them. I would have your whole heart, I will not share the worship of your heart with any another. I will be Lord in your life, not only Saviour. But you must not have any other Lord but Me, and you must not become lord of your own life. Will you reach wholeheartedly for Me again, undivided?
